The slip direction and slip sense of a fault constrain the orientation of the stress field that caused the fault to slip. Inversion of such slip data for populations of minor faults to determine ancient stress fields is a well-established technique in structural geology. In the field and in oriented core, the slip direction and slip sense of minor faults are typically determined by observation of fault-surface morphology. Because fault surfaces are not visible in image logs, subsurface… CONTINUE READING
